Help Is it ok to use canesten cream? Iam 14+0. Been to boots for advice was told to see Gp.... on Saturday??? And don't really fancy going to a walkin as it's not at that stage yet..just some discomfort at moment, so trying to nip it in the bud.. did have salty bath last night but it didn't really made much difference. Will repeat tonight. Anyone has any experience with this please?
You can use the pessary and cream in pregnancy but not the oral tablet. You can buy them over the counter in some supermarkets or send someone else to buy it and don't disclose its for a pregnant person. Use fingers to insert a pessary rather than the applicator
Might be that you've already bought it but if you need to get thrush medication in the future, it's free with a prescription and mat exemption card. I had thrush when I was around 14 weeks gone and thought hey if I can get the stuff for free why not!? Went to GP and that was that. They gave me the pessery and cream and it cleared up in a few days! Obviously weekend isn't the ideal time to need to see a GP but they would always be my first port of call if convenient Hope you start feeling better soon- thrush is miserable! X
